Who We Are

We’re the largest community and blog for introverts in the world.

Our Mission

To let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are. You’re not broken because you’re quiet. There’s nothing wrong with you because you like spending time alone.

Meet Our Founder

Hi introverts! *waves shyly*

Jenn Granneman is the founder of Introvert, Dear and the author of The Secret Lives of Introverts. She started Introvert, Dear in 2013 as a personal blog. She was living with an extroverted roommate, dating an extroverted guy, and working an extroverted job (teaching 4th grade). She wanted to write about what it was like being an introvert living in an extrovert’s world. In true introvert form, she wrote her blog anonymously for almost two years. She had no desire to be in the spotlight — and she had no idea her “little” blog would one day the world’s largest introvert community!

With the help of “quiet ones” around the world, Jenn is on a mission: to show introverts everywhere it’s okay to be who they are.

Jenn blogs for Psychology Today; her work has appeared on HuffPost, Susan Cain’s Quiet RevolutionUpworthyThe MightyThe MuseMotherly, and a number of other outlets. She has also appeared on the BBC and in BuzzfeedGlamour magazine, and The Oprah Magazine. Although we’re not currently recording new episodes, Jenn co-hosted the Introvert, Dear Podcast.

Why Is It Called Introvert, Dear?

When Jenn chose the name Introvert, Dear, she imagined a wise older woman inviting a troubled young introvert to lie down on a fancy chaise lounge in the kind of therapy session you might see in a movie. The older woman began her worldly advice by saying, “Now, introvert, dear…” Kinda weird, we know, but as Jenn says… welcome to my brain!
